An official of Lee Seung Gi’s agency Hook Entertainment told OSEN on June 23, “The recently circulated rumor is completely untrue and groundless. Lee Seung Gi has suffered great damage, but this woman who’s completely unknown to us has also suffered serious damage, so we have requested the Cyber Crime Investigation Team to investigate.”
It has been confirmed that the woman in the picture circulated along with the rumor is not only NOT Lee Seung Gi’s makeup artist, but also just an ordinary woman who does not have any ties with him. Lee Seung Gi and his real makeup artist are NOT lovers, but they have a close (friendly) relationship developed over a long period of time before his enlistment.
The agency official added, “Since Lee Seung Gi’s debut, like other stars, there have been ridiculous rumors every once in a while, but because they were untrue, we never responded. This time, it was being spread so excessively, we decided to respond strongly. Lee Seung Gi is defamed when he has done nothing wrong, and a woman with whom he has no relationship at all has suffered vast damage. We think it’s a crime (for someone) to regard this as simply a joke, so we have requested the Cyber Crime Investigation Team (to get involved). We’ll take action against not only the person who first started it but also the people who spread it maliciously.”
Lee Seung Gi and his agency consider maliciously inventing and spreading unconfirmed rumors of stars as serious defamation, and if they just let it pass this time, it can lead to damage to other stars in the future, so they have firm intention to take strong action. While Lee Seung Gi is currently serving in the military earnestly, he became embroiled in an unfortunate rumor.
